The Soviet Government is continuing “without let-up” its propaganda drive “to stamp out religion from one end of the Soviet Union to another,” the United States Information Agency said today.

Communist writers, the Agency said in a cable from Europe, are turning out stacks of pamphlets ridiculing Christian and Jewish religious traditions. The dispatch emphasized that the Soviet campaign to destroy religion is being intensified every day.
